The last Strikeforce event went down in Oklahoma City on Saturday night, and most fighters were able to escape their bouts relatively unscathed. There were a few medical suspensions though, most notably to UFC fighter Ed Herman. Herman suffered a quick submission loss to Ronaldo Souza by kimura, and the move apparently did some damage to his arm.

In addition to that, Kurt Holobaugh will be out for a while with a suspected hand injury suffered in his unanimous decision loss to Pat Healy on the undercard. Here's the full list of suspensions via the Oklahoma State Athletic Commission:

Dion Staring: Suspended 30 days for precautionary reasons
Ed Herman: Suspended indefinitely until a doctor clears him of shoulder, elbow and hand injuries
Kurt Holobaugh: Suspended indefinitely until a doctor clears him of a hand injury
Anthony Smith: Suspended 30 days due to facial cuts
Mike Bravo: Suspended 30 days for precautionary reasons
